The Garmin Forerunner 910xt offers GPS enabled tracking for triathletes in a variety of sports. It offers a battery life of up to 20 hours and is water resistant for up to 50 meters. It is offered in both a base model and a triathlon model. The base model offers fewer options and it is advisable that serious triathletes opt for the model with more options. For review purposes, we’ll describe both to you.
The base model offers time tracking, distance, pace, speed, elevation, and heart rate. It can be used for all three triathlon events: swimming, running and cycling, but the limited nature of the tracking is where the base model falls flat. It does have a good battery life and the strap is large enough to fit a good size arm. It is water resistant and offers GPS tracking.
The triathlon model of the Garmin Forerunner 910xt provides speed and cadence sensors for runners, vibration alerts for notifications from your smartphone, the ability to race against your own previous times and other racers on the Garmin Connect network and more. It comes with a quick-release kit that offers a heart rate monitor, bike mount, expander strap, charging clip, USB ANT stick, AC adapter and more. The kit is not necessary when you buy the triathlon watch, but they are niceties that you may find yourself needing down the road. This triathlon watch is ideal for either pool or open water swimming; an important distinction for professional athletes. What’s more, the features on this watch make it perfect for other water sports including paddle boarding.
The watch offers seamless transitions between sports with an autoswitch feature with the flick of just one button on the watch. You won’t lose precious seconds during your transitions. For even more information and training options, the triathlon watch lets you track your body weight, fat, water, and more so you can get a full picture of your health.
